Trans Am Speedfest 
“Our whole team is disappointed by the cancellation of the Trans-Am SpeedFest,” commented John Narigi, president and general manager of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. “After two successful and safe races in October, we were hopeful to be able to continue with Trans Am for our season finale. But with the continuing outbreak, many participants coming from out of state, and the unknown state restrictions, we understand and sympathize with Trans Am’s and SVRA’s decision. We greatly look forward to welcoming their return to Monterey April 29 through May 2, 2021.”
